    As a community we have grown a tremendous amount over the past couple of weeks. At this current juncture we're rapidly closing in on 1,300 members!

    However, we have had some issues with negative/toxic attitudes in the past couple of days that I feel needs to be addressed. Firstly, we are not affiliated with Respawn, EA, or Bluepoint Games in any way. We are an unofficial site/forum that has a community that is ambitious about the game. With that being said, we are not an outlet for users to display their disdain for the game without at least some form of constructive criticism. We are a community that has opinions. We have shown that we can share those opinions in a respectful demeanor and have very pleasant talks with one another about issues, details, and other mechanics of the game. In short, we like the game.

    What we will not tolerate, however, is bashing of the game in any way. That is not to be confused with having an unpopular opinion. The difference between the two is how you present it to the general public, or for lack of better words, here on the site. Unpopular opinions are not that uncommon, and we as a community have had numerous, if not countless discussions among ourselves about various things in the game. Simply put, you have a right to show your dislike for any aspect of the game, but do not present your ideas without rational arguments.

    Any indication of "bashing" towards the game will result in your thread/comment being locked down and/or deleted. In conjunction with that, you will be very likely to receive a warning for the behavior displayed depending on the severity.

    Be kind to your fellow peers, everyone. Remember, we do not have many rules here on the site, but one of them is "don't be a jerk".

    Have a great day/afternoon/evening/night everyone! If you have any questions please feel free to chat with me on here or shoot me a PM.

    Like I said in the OP, we're all here to be friendly to one another. I love having open discussions with everyone about anything at all. But I dislike people who just criticize things without reason.

    I am all for differing opinions. If you don;t see Titanfall as the second coming of FPS Jesus, that is cool. I loved the beta. Would love to pre-order the digital download game so I can play as soon as I get back from work... but oh well. I'm not gonna bash Microsoft on this site...(maybe on another) Keep up the great work guys!

    Excellent admin post, I spend time on forums to interact with other people of a shared interest, yes its perfectly fine to have negative opinions , we've all had them from time to time but it really is how you word it.
    Just from my initial impressions of this forum it's infinitely better than Battlelog from bf4 which is impossible to have constructive chat about the game without someone being immature.

    Well said, and remember: It took , as you note, " FPS Jesus" THREE days to respawn!

    Well, a lot of people will continue to compare it to COD, and BF series, and MOH. I guess its because they ARE afraid that this game could become the next big thing in fps games. Its their loss, if they choose NOT to try this game.

    But then again, they are probably campers and uber-snipers that just want to score kills and not actually PLAY the game with a team. ;)
